That New-Job Exhaustion

I started work at my new job today. The first day at work is always a whirlwind, and today was no exception. I'm in a new industry now (tabletop games/consumer products), so I'm unable to rely on the knowledge I acquired in the tv/film post-production industry to help make things easier to comprehend. And let me tell you, it makes for a lot of newbie-confusion!

There are so many acronyms and verbiage that I'm completely in-the-dark about. As this is a new position for this already-in-reorg company, there are a lot of processes that haven't been completely planned out. Sure, that gives me a lot of opportunity to bring something extra to the proverbial table, but it's also really intimidating, not being able to fall back on established protocols.

So yeah, I'm really tired! I wore some fancy-schmancy shoes, so my feet were hurting when I got home (thank you Erik for the afterwork footrub!), I was hungry, and my head was kinda hurting from all the over-stimulation. It was SO NICE plopping down on the couch and having Erik wait on me this evening! I know that won't be a regular luxury, but I'll take it while I can get it!

things people have said

you could always come back to work here at the studio.

We all "work" on desktop games throughout the day... so it would be kind of the same.
